If all the food emojis mean different queer attitudes to you, or if you often hear yourself saying “not in front of my salad”, explore more with our provocative performances centred around food.
Queer food and hospitality are rooted in being outcasted by blood families or closest friends when coming out. Queer food is a story, a journey to finding acceptance. Queer food is not ingredients or labels, but rather the act of a performance! It’s desire, disgust and other social and psychological modes of excess that straight culture often shames.
18:30 doors open
19h – 21h // Performances by Dolly Kershow – Kane Stonestreet – Mandla Rae & more
Since 2011, Fringe! Queer Film & Arts Fest has been an entirely volunteer-run organisation rooted in London’s queer creative scene. In Novembers, and throughout the year, we showcase an eclectic mix of films, arts and events celebrating LGBTIQA+ stories from around the world, welcoming everybody.
Fringe! started in 2011 as a community response to arts cuts carnage, and since then we’ve ‘expanded exponentially to become one of the most innovative and exciting festivals on the circuit.’(Londonist)
From feature films to experimental installations, workshops and lively debates to wild parties, Fringe! hosts a multitude of diverse events to tickle every one of the senses. You’ll see us flooding East London’s cinemas, art galleries, pop-up venues and basement clubs with the powerful, provocative and strange.
As we continue to develop and our Fringe! family continues to grow, some things stay the same: a lot of our screenings and events are free or affordable, we remain open to new voices and ideas, and we’ll always be queer: celebratory but critical as hell.
